On the first Thursday of the month at 12:00 pm, Gadabouts have lunch in the church commons.       Make your reservation with Karen Wood.

On October 6th, Gadabouts will meet for lunch. I will pick up the subs. We will also have chips and a dessert. The cost is only $5. Our guest speaker will be Mayor Davis. This will be a very interesting speaker. There will also be BINGO!!

Upcoming lunches: November 3rd and our big Christmas Luncheon on December 1rst.

We look forward to seeing everyone and getting hugs and smiles.

(Lunch dates are subject to change.)



Normally on the third Thursday of every month, we go on a day trip. But during these quarantined times, we were playing it safe.

I am now taking bus reservations for our trip to Mercier’s Apple Market on October 20th. We will leave at 9 am and be back about 3 pm or a little earlier. I’ll find a restaurant for us to eat lunch nearby. The seating is limited so please get your reservations to me by October 6th. The cost is only $5 each. Will be so much fun to finally get out as a group again.


Praying that we can start back this summer/fall time period by going on day trips to points of interest around our area.

Please, contact Karen to reserve your seat on the bus for all outings.

Keep checking back for more information.

Some of our favorite trips include: We use the church buses for transportation unless otherwise noted.

  • Cumberland County Playhouse and lunch at the Cumberland State Park
  • Shopping and shows in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg before Thanksgiving.
  • Sunshine Hollow, is owned by David & Vicki Rhyne outside of the Athens/Riceville area.

All lunches and events are subject to change. Watch the newsletter and bulletin for announcements.
